Flower Soft Bouquet
Raise your hand if you remember when Flower Soft first hit the market? Seems like it was all the rage for awhile and then things started to quiet down...or is it just that I'm not that up on what's going on in the world of Flower Soft? (That's probably a more likely answer!) Well tonight I'm teaching a class at Wholly Scrap and we're going to dive into a few tubs of Flower Soft (not literally, of course!) to create this card. I found a tutorial on making these cute bouquets on Splitcoast and I even happen to have the OCL stamp set that was used in the tutorial so...I created a similar look and I love it! It's so much fun to see the pop of color and dimension that Flower Soft gives to a card. Another fun thing that I found out, quite as an accident since I realized when I started to make my flowers that I didn't have any white glue in the house, Glossy Accents works awesome when making the bouquets. It dries much faster than white glue and once it's dry, there isn't a single piece of Flower Soft that's coming off the wires! I'm looking forward to demonstrating this fun technique tonight... Other elements for this card...This fabulous ribbon is from American Crafts and the paper is from Jillibean Soup. Enjoy your weekend and be sure to check back on Sunday for a Keep it Simple card!
